Does anyone know of this town or the translation of the town name. It is
also listed as ZASTAVNE in Shtetl Seeker.

Re: Alien Registration Card ("Green Card") #general

There appears to be some confusion regarding the terms Alien Registration
Card, Act, and records. Succeeding messages >from the original poster made
clear that his interest was in the documents his ancestor or the admitting
INS officer(s) completed during the immigration process.

The Alien Registration Card, known as the "green card" is made available to
the immigrant to prove his/her compliance with US law. The card serves as
an internal passport for permanent residents in the US. A history of the
green card may be found at
http://www.ins.gov/graphics/aboutins/history/articles/Green.htm In
particular, the card only came into existence in 1940, after the US
Congress approved the Alien Registration Act.

Alert for AOL subscribers ("mail" mode - individual postings) #lodz #poland

Seflaum@...
 

MODERATOR NOTE: The following is an excerpt of a message in yesterday's
GerSig digest. If you receive the Lodz area mailing list in "Mail" mode
please read the following as you may not be receiving all messages posted to
this list.

.... A technical problem exists somewhere between AOL and the listserver that
sends postings to subscribers.

Today, for the second time in less than a week, a number of
posts that were sent to AOL subscribers in the "Mail" mode were not
delivered to all subscribers. (Neither were they "bounced" back to the
sending listserver.)

AOL members who want to be sure to receive all postings should
change their subscriptions to the "Digest" mode or create a second AOL
screen name and subscribe to the "Digest" mode at that email address.
(I subscribe in the "Mail" and "Digest" and "Index" modes via AOL.
Experience shows that only my "Mail" mode subscription has this problem on a
regular basis.)

An alternative would be to use another email provider for your list
email.

This problem is almost certainly true for AOL "Mail" mode subscribers
to other JewishGen SIG lists also. Our efforts to remedy the problem through
AOL technical support have to date been unsatisfactory...

1860s Belarus: take stepfather's name? #belarus

Joyce Weaver <joyweave@...>
 

My great-grandfather passed away when my grandmother was three years
old. Her mother remarried and had three more children. I've always
assumed that my grandmother's maiden name, VILNER/ WILLNER, was that of
her natural father. But now I'm wondering whether this could be her
step-father's name.

Is anyone knowledgeable about naming traditions in Belarus in the
1860s? Would a child retain her birth-father's name? Would a
step-father adopt the child, either formally or informally and give her
his own name?

Re: KLEIN, FRIEDMAN, LIPNER & HARTSTEIN #hungary

Subject: Re: KLEIN, FRIEDMAN, LIPNER & HARTSTEIN

Thanks to all who responded on and off-list. Yes, I do know that the
pattern suggests that the people that I am looking for were the
Sandek at the brit! I only used the words "Christian Name" to
indicate that that was the way they were sighted on the "copy of the
birth document". I expect that all of these people were Jewish!

More important to the whole question is: Do any of you recognize
these names and have them on your tree?

Thanks again for checking these names against your data base. Case
in point is that I am tracking any and all HARTSTEIN and have about
ten unrelated trees where I am trying to find the common link. I
think I have found one already but just haven't gone back quite far
enough. BUT in this extensive data base the name Jeremias HARTSTEIN
does not appear. So to which family does he belong?

Thanks again,

Barbara Wasser
